Not a rebellious Villanelle. C. J. Black.

Let us from here go forth and multiply

Strength in numbers is the way to go

Don’t question or reason why

Publish your poetry do not be shy

Come on poets let us put on a show

Let us from here go forth and multiply

Or else your confidence you will destroy

Don’t contemplate that people might think, ego

Don’t question or reason why

Do ask for assistance if you find you can’t get by

Don’t rush in, take time out words will eventually flow

Let us from here go forth and multiply

You will complete your Villanelle on that you can rely

A poet’s life can be a lonely one as you plough and furrow

Don’t question or reason why

You will learn as time goes by of different tactics you can employ

Never despair if today you fall down, remember there is always tomorrow

Let us from here go forth and multiply

Don’t question or reason why.

C. J. Black
